Progress Village was Tampa's first affordable housing suburb, and this week on Florida Matters we'll learn about its story and hear fromĀ residents who share their memories of growing up there. On this podcast, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks to WUSF News Director Mary Shedden and to Florida Matters Producer Stephanie Colombini about the people who agreed to tell their stories. We hear more about the pioneering families of Tampa's Progress Village, and why the sense of community was so strong in that neighborhood. We ask whether the Progress Village elders have a lesson for us in how to build the bonds of community.
